Dilomat Farms and Services Limited is an indigenous limited liability company incorporated in Nigeria for the purpose of general business undertaking, and in particular Mushroom production and Research.
Located in the Faculty of Agric Teaching and Research Farm of Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Nkpolu, Port Harcourt, the Centre has been engaged in mushroom research for some years with a back up by a team of lecturers at the Rivers State University of Science and Technology and University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Our Mission is to produce mushrooms in an artificial setting.
in this work would of necessity involve the creation or transplanting of the above conditions or a simulation of these conditions in a laboratory environment. This forms the hypothetical basis for the work following: Production of “the fungi of the fungi”, Production of MC, Transfers, Production of Spawn proper, Spawn- Replication.
Our vision is to see that mushroom production is a multi dimensional venture that will change the entire agricultural and industrial landscape of this nation, and impact positively on other nations, especially African nations beyond the territorial boundaries of Nigeria.
With our breakthrough in the year 2003 in the technology of spawn production, produced with tissue culture in Nigeria by Nigerians (our staff), we have been able to pioneer mushroom production in Rivers State. Dilomat mushrooms are now common sights in hotels and supermarkets in Port Harcourt, Rivers State and other neighbouring states- Imo, Abia, Delta, Edo, Lagos, Abuja, Bayelsa etc.
Our mushroom has not only been acceptable for the Nigerian market and beyond, but has been certified by NAFDAC as good and fit for home consumption and export- Fresh- A1_2596 and Dried- A1_2810 respectively.
